Topic: Political History - mid-20th Century - Syria
Salma Mardam Bey's unique account of the struggle of the Syrian nationalists for independence during the Second World War is written from the perspective of one of the most prominent Syrian leaders of the time, her father, the late Jamil Mardam Bey.

Drawing on her father's private papers - personal memoranda, minutes of meetings, diaries and letters - as well as British and French official records, the author vividly brings to life the chronology of events, from Vichy rule in 1939 to the bombardment of Damascus in 1945.

This highly original portrayal of this period in Syria's history shows how the triparite conflict involving Britain under Churchill, France under de Gaulle and Syria under the nationalists, was finally resolved to Syria's advantage.

This fascinating story is provocatively told by Salma Mardam Bey from a personal and entirely fresh standpoint.
